Proceeds will go to Tampa Bay WaVE and our efforts to secure and furnish a co-working space for our members, their ventures and any member of the local web and mobile tech community.
Despite having 40 members and oodles of friends and fans, we have uncovered a plight - a growing problem that is threating the success of entrepreneurial efforts everywhere....
High Tech Homelessness!
Creating a shared space is critical for these high-growth potential ventures and their founders for knowledge- and resource-sharing, as well as mutual problem solving. Like planting seeds in fertile soil, helpling us find and create a productive workspace for local tech entrepreneurs will not only help their ventures grow, but will also foster sustainable entrepreneurship and high-wage job creation for the entire community.
Plus, having a go-to space for all web and mobile tech entrepreneurs means that we can more easily provide meaningful internships and other job opportunities for the area's college students or anyone looking to pursue tech entrepreneurship.
We need everything right now - including desks, chairs, whiteboards, etc. Every little bit counts, and you can have a great time too.
LIVE music, GREAT food & drink, FREE valet parking & a WORTHY cause - what else could you want?
